Visited as part of the multi attraction ticket and at buy one person get another person free. It's ok and a fun place, but not worth a full price single attraction admission. Wax figures are not the greatest, but I think kids would like it and its a good place to go one time. I do not believe it is updated very often.

Right after you get in there, there are 4 doors, Marilyn Monroe in her dressing room but you can't even open the door wide enough to take a picture! The next 3 doors are sound effects hooked to a door knob on a door that doesn't even open. No wax figures, not even a picture of a recreation! Completly STUPID. One.... Yes ONE, UNO! Wax figure you can pose with, Johnny Depp. Save your money.... buy some taffy.

The wax figures are really poorly done and you can't interact with any of them expect the jhonny depp one. Its smaller and doesn't take long to go through

Had so much fun here! My favorite! Lots of life like things to see, it's amazing to think these things are made of wax! Fun for the whole family!

I have toured the Waax Works here in Newport, Oregon several times: 1 Wax Works tour on the pier walk area SF, California and Wax Works in Atlanta, GA. ; I really like the one in SF and Atlanta much better for the following reasons:
Newport is "older" by some years and has become a bit dingy, small compared to SF & Atlanta, does offer "combo pricing package" but you need to seek it out or go to the Newort Chamber on Hwy 101. Otherwise you will pay almost double without the combo package offer.
I think all 3, Wax works, under Sea Garden and Ripleys are entertaining and interesting.
